I am a Kiwi guy, a software developer, and I'm told that I have a good sense of humour…. well usually!!

I have a physical disability, cerebral palsy, and because of this I need the assistance of Open minded, Intelligent & Caring people to assist me with my day-to-day business of Living Life, working, keeping my home Zen, going out, socialising & chilling at home.

PERSONAL CARE REQUIRED - Assisting me in the toilet, shower, dressing etc - all not difficult and nothing that you would not do for yourself during the day – but this is an essential part of the job.

No experience necessary. You do not need any special skills/training - merely a willingness to listen and try your best.

Other aspects of the job include assisting me with housework, household administration, shopping and generally ensuring that things run smoothly.

The work is organised in shifts:

Mon - Fri:
7am - 330pm
330pm - I'm set up for the night (earliest finish after 11pm)

Sat - Sun:
10am - 330pm
530pm - I'm set up for the night (earliest finish after 10:30pm)

These shifts are organised based on my limited support funding and my personal needs. Not included in the above are extra shifts that I may need to do in a week - socialising, shopping, etc.

Due to personal requirements shift start times are not often flexible but the number of shifts you do is flexible - these can fit around classes, other jobs, Family life, etc. If you would like fixed shifts each week this can be an option too. As my disability isn't isn't just a Monday to Friday thing I do require some people to work weekends.

Whilst I try my best to keep within the shift hours out of respect for your own life, there are times where I do need you to work longer. You are always paid for all hours worked. I always really appreciate the flexibility with your time – it makes a huge positive difference!!!

Travellers who are here only a short time are very welcome … as are locals and travellers who may want a more permanent job.

I generally employ 3 to 5 people at any one time depending on how much people want to work, as well as how well we get on. People work between 15 to 35+ hours a week - again this depends on how well we get on, as well as the needs/requirements of my other staff.

I work out the weekly roster every Sunday - so there is flexibility from week to week when you work. As I mentioned, if you would like fixed shifts each week this can be an option.

There is no driving required and I live in Mount Cook - very close to Cuba St.

  • Pay rate is $30.00 before tax per hour.
  • You must be in New Zealand, or arriving in New Zealand
  • You must be eligible to work in New Zealand and have an IRD number.
  • You must already be in Wellington, or coming to Wellington by your own choice, not just coming to Wellington just based on an interview. I say this because this is a very personal job and you can never tell if we really match by just an interview.

If you are interested, please send me a detailed letter talking about yourself, your interests, why you are interested in this job, and why you think that you would be good at this job.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I Look forward to hearing from you!
